Practice:

I have been building my practice in Yorkshire since relocating from London in 2005, working with a wide variety of people including dancers, children with disabilities and adults with neurological conditions & people recovering from surgery. The majority of people I see are simply looking to improve their comfort in day to day life.

Biography:

I initially trained in dance & worked as a dance artist, performing and teaching in a variety of educational and community settings over many years. In 1996 I became lecturer in Dance at the University of Derby where I taught on the undergraduate programme for six years. In 1997 I cofounded Wild Ducks with Mieke Chill, an organisation which provided movement and dance opportunities for young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Following my initial training in contemporary dance, I came across alternative approaches to working with movement and the body which really intrigued me and felt very satisfying; firstly the Alexander Technique and then Feldenkrais. It was after a series of individual Feldenkrais lessons, having done Awareness Through Movement (group classes) for a few years, that I became truly hooked and decided to do the professional training.

I completed the Amsterdam International Feldenkrais Training (AIFT) in October 2002. I now have a thriving practice in Hebden Bridge where I teach regular classes and workshops and give individual sessions. I have taught sessions for the MS society in Oldham, delivered an introductory workshop for physiotherapists working with children in the NHS in Hartlepool and have delivered sessions to dancers in training most recently in London for Independent Dance on their MA programme.
